Castro makes first public appearance since surgery
10/29/2006
The ailing Fidel Castro made his first public appearance in more than a month, walking and ridiculing rumors of his death in a video aired Saturday on Cuban state television. The 80-year-old Cuban leader, who temporarily ceded power to his brother Raul in July following intestinal surgery, appeared thin and tired, but read the newspaper in a loud voice and was shown walking slowly but steadily in an unidentified room. "They've declared me moribund prematurely," he said, holding a copy of Saturday's edition of Granma, the Communist Party daily newspaper.
